TV Rock Live conducted an interview with vocalist/guitarist Jesper Binzer of the Danish rockers D-A-D at this year’s edition of the Hellfest festival, which was held June 15-17 in Clisson, France. You can now watch the chat below.
Binzer will release his official autobiography, “I Won’t Cut My Hair”, in Denmark on October 4 via Gyldendal.
Official book description: “Although only 46 years old, Jesper Binzer has experienced more than most, since the band was formed in 1982. The stories he tells now are energetic and entertaining in its rock memories associated with the band’s 30-year anniversary on the Danish rock scene. ‘I Won’t Cut My Hair’ says it honestly and unpolished from a life in the fast lane. It is the story of big hits, even bigger record contracts and wild concerts at home and abroad. But it is also the story of depression, substance abuse, therapy and economic downturn. Jesper Binzer says it all unsentimental and reflective. The book is richly illustrated.”
D-A-D‘s 11th studio album, “DIC.NII.LAN.DAFT.ERD.ARK”, was released last November. The follow-up to 2008’s “Monster Philosophy” was helmed by Nick Foss, who previously worked with D-A-D on such LPs as “No Fuel Left For The Pilgrims”, “Sympatico”, “Everything Glows” and “Soft Dogs”. The album title is a play on D-A-D‘s original band name DISNEYLAND AFTER DARK, which had to be changed after a threat of a lawsuit from The Walt Disney Company.
